From Lipari you can see this on a boat trip. It doesn't stop and carries on to all the other Aeolian islands

Porticello once monopolised the global supply of Pumice. Indeed Pumice and Obsidian outcrops are the reasons Lipari was first settled in Neolithic times. The Pumice mountain Monte Pilato has been extensively quarried and enormous white scars mark the Northern flanks. Today the quarries are no...More

Amazing my kids really loved this place and brought geology to life. Also they has great fun looking for Obsedian rocks among st the vast amounts of pumice. Also snorkeling looked like you were swimming just above the moon surface.

The colour of the water is amazing, evn if its cloudy because of the pomice. It can be hard to get in or out as there are big stones and sometimes waves and currents that make it hard. Small, quiet and atmospheric and the bars...More

It's a really strange place. Besides the abandoned factory with all the huge equipments creating a strange atmosphere, the white landscape is stunning. Very white rocks everywhere, down to the sea.

Reached the beach by scooter. The white pomice wall in contrast with the emerald blue sea were breathtaking. It's not very big, many locals frequent the beach. Huge sea glass on this beach for collectors!!!!

Not every day you can see the sea close to mine of pumice stone, so I think that is a particular place where to go in Canneto (Lipari). A small tip: don't go if there is wind because the dust could be annoying.
